“I have to struggle to change people’s perceptions of me. I grew very frustrated with the perception that I’m this shy, retiring, inhibited aristocratic creature when I’m absolutely not like that at all. I think I’m much more outgoing and exuberant than my image.“
“There’s a happiness about me, a confidence and a happiness that I didn’t have when I was younger. You feel good inside, you look good outside. I feel like I look like somebody who’s having a good life, who’s enjoying it a little better than I did before.”
There’s a story that I lied when I said I had horse-riding experience when I was auditioning for the Narnia films. They asked me if I’d been on a horse before and I said yes, because I had. It’s just that it was when I was five and it was a Shetland pony. But that’s not the point—I answered the question truthfully.

–––– ‘’I always wanted to use my name because it`s my name. Nobody really called me Ricky. But when I was young, I would be auditioning and I would be submitted for a show and casting directors would immediately go, `Oh, that kid`s too ethnic,` just by my name, even though I look so American. As soon as I was done (with Disney), I decided to go under my name. I figured I knew enough casting directors by then.’’
Film is an avenue that I really want to explore more. I’ve learned that my personality is quite impulsive and spontaneous, so the idea that I could play a character for six months and then play something else immediately after is really appealing to me.
